Manchester City: These fans criticise Bernardo Silva’s judgement over tweet about team-mate

Manchester City: These fans criticise Bernardo Silva’s judgement over tweet about team-mate - Manchester City

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has defended winger Bernardo Silva over a controversial tweet involving team-mate Benjamin Mendy.

The Guardian reported that the Portugal international had posted a childhood picture of Mendy alongside the mascot of Spanish confectionery company Conguitos with the caption “Guess who?”, the tweet later being deleted.

Consequently, anti-racism organisation Kick It Out called for the Football Association to take action against Bernardo over his “discriminatory” tweet, despite Mendy seemingly taking no offence over its content, as reported by The Guardian.

Following last night’s Carabao Cup win over Preston, Guardiola strongly defended the 25-year-old as a “lovely” person, saying that he has a strong friendship with Mendy. [via The Guardian]

Sam Lee, Manchester City correspondent for The Athletic, reacted to Guardiola’s comments by taking to Twitter to defend Bernardo’s personality but condemn the nature of his tweet. [via @SamLee]
